Only Silence and Surrender

…So, what should happen to someone who jokes about islam?

The question was simple, the answer, direct: You joke about Islam, we will kill you.

When asked, Jon Stewart had no comment. Bill Maher, who frequently ridicules Christianity, would not even acknowledge the question.

What is the matter with these people? Are they frightened for their safety? Reluctant to offend? When did comedy begin shrinking from the offensive? Have we done this before with any other group? Are even the funny men succumbing to dhimmitude – submission to Muslim law in exchange for security and peace?

So it would seem.

…so what exactly should happen when someone jokes about Islam?

… “First he should be warned. But if he continues and he goes too far with Islam, then, according to Islam, he must die.”

Well. Good we got that cleared up.

This, at least, explains the response to the Danish cartoons last year, when protests devolved into riots from Syria to Copenhagen, from Paris to Teheran. But no reasonable person would agree that it makes sense – or has a place in contemporary society.

Pentagon revises estimate of troops needed for surge

WASHINGTON, March 6 (Reuters) – The number of U.S. troops needed to carry out President George W.
